When Ignacio manages to secure a highly-respectable position at the local religious guild, Carmen, a devout Catholic woman who was confidently pursuing the same title, refuses to concede gracefully. Her scheme to overthrow him, however, ultimately leads to chain of hysterical and comically inconvenient events that often include an eccentric mix of characters.

Marta Diaz De Lope Diaz’s first feature film playfully challenges conventional norms in this screwball comedy where chaos ensues in every corner. Well-received at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival, Hopelessly Devout was presented with both an Audience Award and a Best Supporting Actress Award for Carmen Flores’ portrayal of Juana.
